ALISON MALONI (HOST): So Todd, you were there -- let's move on to Tucker, Tucker Carlson agreeing to part ways with Fox. You worked there for 14 years. I think I remember sending you pitches when I started my PR company. What do you make of this parting? A lot -- again we don't know the details. We know there was that lawsuit settlement. We don't know all the facts. But what do you make of this?
TODD STARNES (GUEST): Yeah this is very strange. But my sources inside the building say this was unexpected. People were shocked to discover what had happened. The staff was caught completely off guard.
Look, a lot of people are saying, well, this is about Dominion. I don't think it is. If it had been about Dominion I think we do have we would have seen Maria Bartiromo and Jeanine Pirro being given the heave-ho.
But I do suspect that there is some inkling that this is actually about nationalism. And, of course, Fox News Channel, owned by foreigners, and they really don't care about America unlike Newsmax which does, an American-owned company. And I think a lot of people at the network were very troubled by what Tucker was saying, espousing this idea that America should be first – that it's okay to make America great again.
And, unfortunately, over the years they have hired so many liberals at that company. As a matter of fact, one executive many years ago told me that maybe one percent of the employees would actually share those ideas of God, country, family, and American sovereignty.
